Subjectlinux-next: build failure after merge of the final tree (nfs tree related)
Hi Trond,

[This was previously reported as a warning ... but sparc uses -Werr in
more places]

After merging the final tree, today's linux-next build (sparc64 defconfig)
failed like this:

In file included from arch/sparc/kernel/sys_sparc32.c:24:0:
include/linux/nfs_fs.h: In function 'nfs_display_fhandle_hash':
include/linux/nfs_fs.h:416:1: error: no return statement in function returning non-void [-Werror=return-type]

Caused by commit d8e0539ebdff ("NFS: add filehandle crc for debug display").

I added the following patch for today:
